Category Archives: WebService

more of the same in blue..

Having the building blocks of my SID player available (see earlier posts), it really was no brainer to take up the suggestion of a colleague to take his Rockbox version of a MOD player and also turn it into a Flash version (it took about half an hour).

To try out at least something new, I decided to tap the WebService of a popular chiptune page and learn how that is done with PHP. Also I am using AJAX to integrate the resulting data.

As I had already done in my SID version I am using a PHP/cURL based proxy script to work around the Flash security restrictions and load the music files indirectly from the respective domain.

The result can be seen here.
